Then along comes ThanksNo.com. The answer to your troubles. Thanks No kindly informs your FWD-happy friend that you appreciate their friendship but loathe their silly FWDs. In a nice, friendly way. It even uses the phrase: "You’re not a bad person, and no one hates you".
The text is completely hilarious although I don't particularly like the email they include at the end (which is an obvious ploy to get themselves marketed virally). I would prefer that they'd included this message on a separate page entirely and just stopped at "Thanks for understanding".
I haven't had to use this yet, but I'm definitely willing -- so, please keep that in mind before you see something really funny, hit Forward and type my name in the To: field. :)
Would you use ThanksNo? Have you seen anything similar? Leave a comment!
